AMAZING! We booked the 3-night decadence package and everything was perfect. They have thought of every detail and we wanted for nothing. King bed, enormous bathroom with rainshower, huge sofa for watching TV, a lovely kitchenette for cooling our champagne, cheeses, and choc-covered strawberries :-). The outdoor terrace is enormous and had comfy outdoor lounge chairs and the BEST thing is the deep bathtub for two - we enjoyed the uninterrupted countryside views out to Gerroa and beyond! It is so tranquil, we noticed the other guests only by their cards in the carpark, and it was a truly relaxing and lovely stay. Don't miss the wonderful 25-metre heated indoor pool and hot tub - all enclosed from the elements so perfect any time of year. The retreat is approx 5 minute from Berry town centre so you're moments from all the restaurants etc.
We spent three nights at Mt Hay to celebrate my 50th birthday. Mt Hay is luxurious accomodation just minutes out of Berry. With just 5 suites you really feel like you have the place to yourselves. We stayed in The Big Blue which was spectacular! A very comfortable king bed, huge rainfall shower with great pressure and floor to ceiling windows that frame glorious sunrises. The landscaping is fantastic, beautiful grounds to walk around - feeding the koi, swinging over the escarpment and admiring the view right out to the ocean.
The pool and sauna area is great. You really never want to leave!
Anthony and Louise are very welcoming and there if you need anything.
My only suggestion would be an area with a BBQ and fire pit. We really didn’t want to leave for meals but with very limited (microwave only) cooking facilities you really have to. We had two other couples staying as well and there is really no where to gather for a meal and drinks other than in the apartments where you don’t want to make too much noise to disturb other guests.
Perfect location for a romantic getaway or just an escape with friends away from hectic lives. Highly recommend and look forward to returning!
We recently spent a few days at Mt Hay Retreat. What a treat!
Everything was just wonderful. The retreat is set amongst the most beautiful and tranquil landscape and it’s made to feel like you’re the only ones there. Our accommodation was fantastic, very private and quiet and the views were simply breathtaking. The pool was just glorious and we had it completely to ourselves. Anthony & Louise were extremely gracious hosts and made you feel ‘Berry’ welcome. I highly recommend Mt Hay Retreat for a quiet and romantic getaway. We’ll be back!
I surprised my partner with a trip to Mt Hay to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed for two nights but it felt much longer in the amazing relaxing setting. Anthony could not have been more accommodating as a host, offering plenty of recommendations of local wineries and beaches to visit, as well as taking us to feed their goats and even supplying our car with some oil when it overheated. The outdoor bath is an amazing luxury, the swimming pool and spa is great for a colder evening and the swing is a gorgeous spot that makes you feel on top of the world. Their two gorgeous dogs were the icing on the cake!
I was recommended to visit Mt Hay retreat, and I am so pleased I did. I surprised my wife for our anniversary. So what are then pluses here: no formal check in or checkout( yep, these guys know how to make your visit memorable)
Plenty of options to include ie cheese platters, massages etc
Closeness to a range of great restaurants
Style and level of amenities
Every break has to come to an end!
Will we be back, you bet we will.
So thanks Anthony and Louise you made our stay very memorable, your hospitality was first class and your respect for privacy comes naturally to you.
